Have you and your partner been arguing for years over similar issues but getting nowhere?
Do you feel as if you can’t even talk to one another anymore?
Has there been less sex, less intimacy for a long time?
Have you discovered a recent betrayal?
Do you feel as if you failed at counseling before or don’t have time to devote months in therapy?
A two-day couples intensive can help you make lasting, positive changes in your relationship!
If you want to give your relationship the best final chance you can — fast… Couples intensives were designed for you to get nearly a year of therapy in just one weekend.
With my supportive approach and your motivation to succeed, you will be able to move forward with communication tools that fit for you and your partner.
Are Couples Intensives Right for You?
Most couples I coach feel caught in the same disagreements because they don’t ask the right questions. My focus is to help you ask the right questions and why. This process gets you to the heart of an issue for lasting change. This is not a quick fix… but can be a game changer.
You can practice your new skills with guidance to finally break old patterns.
You won’t backslide in between weekly sessions – you’ll practice new ways of relating to one another in just two days.
You’ll discover the missing pieces that therapists in the past haven’t told you before, including how your mind is wired to keep you stuck, and what you can finally do about it.
You get a customized workbook of tools and guidelines to keep you from doing things the old way and maximize the investment you’ve made in your relationship.
have felt caught in an unhappy cycle for a long time,
You are wondering if it might be time to end the relationship, But you are not sure,
You want one last shot to really know whether to stay in the relationship, then
A couples intensive/couples retreat is the most effective choice.
I work with couples of all types — specifically couples that seek change, need it today, and want to strengthen the bond with their partner.
With research-based methods, you can find intimacy, compassion, and happiness together. An intensive gives you the time to understand yourself and your partner and the tools to increase the joy more fully, more deeply in the relationship.
I have a structured, proven process that helps you make significant progress in your relationship. This process begins before we meet for the intensive:
A Couples Intensive Helps You and Your Partner Fall in Love Again
All in two days. During the week or weekend, your choice.
You may need more than weekly relationship therapy- a relationship intensive may be what you need.
Intensives are wonderful because of the results couples enjoy. Weekly hour-long sessions can run out of time before couples make much progress. The intensive allows you to make progress quickly and use what you’ve learned right away to build on the future you want.
Q: Do all therapists provide marriage or couples intensives?
A: Not all therapists have the specific training necessary to work with couples or employ successful intensives/retreats. Research couples therapists and their experiences prior to selecting someone to work with. My work is heavily influenced by Dr. Ellyn Bader, Dr. Peter Pearson, and The Developmental Model. You can learn more about that approach here.
Q: Is there a guarantee the weekend will work?
A: Yes and no. If you are motivated to learn new techniques, are ready to recognize how you each play a role in the joy and the pain of your specific relationship issues and are eager to practice with your partner after the intensive, I guarantee you significant growth. As with most things in life, what we put into something important to us is what we gain from it.
Q: Can we afford a marriage intensive?
A: It is less expensive than a year of traditional therapy, and it’s certainly cheaper than a divorce. In fact, many couples consider it a gift they’ve given each other — especially when they think about the financial and emotional costs that come with divorce.
So, the question might be – can you afford NOT to invest in your relationship at this crucial point?
My mentor of mine once shared, “if your relationship is worth seeking help for, it’s worth investing in.”
